Oimatsu Shrine


Tanabata Shrine and Oimatsu Shrine are located along Homan River on the west and the east side respectively. Two statues of worship that are arranged in pairs are enshrined in each shrine. The statue of Inukaigami is worshipped here and is usually not allowed to be displayed in public. It is a 41cm high and 24.5cm width colored human figure and carved 3 dimensionally together with a cow. Using Homan River to resemble Milky Way and placing Orihime and Hikogyu on both sides of the river, we get a glympse of romance in ancient worship.
